Imagine that your team is stranded and needs to cross a raging river to get out of danger!
The Bridge is a fun and challenging team development activity that gets everybody involved in working towards a clear goal – building the bridge that will take the team to safety.
The keys to success are great communication, problem solving and helping people to play to their strengths.
A Wild Thinking facilitator will discuss the activity with you before the day and agree on the key development themes that you would like to focus on. We will then tailor the activity to focus specifically on these key areas.
Once the scene is set, the team will start to organise themselves. They will have to consider scenarios such as; who will design the bridge itself, who will find the building materials needed, who will learn to drive the team’s remote controlled bus over the bridge etc. As everyone works against the clock, they will have to collaborate, make decisions and communicate effectively to get the bridge up and escape to safety before they are engulfed in the raging torrent.
Fun with a purpose
The activity is then reviewed to see what the participants learned about teamwork, communications, planning and to explore how they can take these insights back to their working environment. Themes can include:
